Tomorrow: Talking To Craig Venter

By Carl Zimmer | October 19, 2007 3:49 pm

venter%20portrait200.jpgThanks for all the questions for my talk with Craig Venter for bloggingheads.tv. I didn’t end up reading questions verbatim a la Emily Litella (“a Mr. Richard Feder from Fort Lee New Jersey asks…”) But the questions definitely shaped the conversation.

Some readers have been asking when our talk will be posted. Answer: Saturday morning. I’ll post a link when it’s live, and you can also check bloggingheads.tv directly.

Update: It’s up. Comments are welcome over there or over here.

    He does an excellent job of misrepresenting the importance of non-coding DNA in the human genome. Sure, some of it has a function, but it’s not clear from the interview that the majority is just junk.

    Also, every time Venter says “Genetic Code” when he means “Genome” a fairy loses its wings.

    You confused Emily Litella with Roseann Roseannadanna, therefore “Darwinism” is wrong and all the mutually contradictory creationisms are correct. ;-)
